it can be cold, and windy (those sand dunes didn't appear overnight)
but last year it was balmy 80 during day and warm at night with no wind.
you just have to go in the right season....
with the right weather report.
Cool,
Weather isn’t a problem for us. Except for wind.
I was more wondering about the space - If it’s open camping in the area/hard to find decent spots.
I’ve “backcountry” camped t the south by Dante’s view/peak, but never to the north by eureka

Usually lots of options in the dunes area. There are multiple designated campsites at two locations by the dunes. There are additional impromptu sites off the road as you head past the dunes toward Steel Pass, before it takes the turn south.

If the wind is up there is one semi-sheltered area that has worked for me. Where the road to Steel Pass takes a hard dog-leg to the right (south), you will find a faint track heading to the northeast. Head out there about a quarter mile. Seems to be in a bit of a wind shadow.
Well shoot, thanks for the great detailed reply.
I will mark the wind sheltered spot on the map. Thank you much
